Teenagers Can Win Flights To Cambodia In This UNICEF Photo Contest
UNICEF invites teens aged 13 to 17 to participate in the Picture My Rights Contest and share photos to illustrate the children’s rights that matter the most.

It gives them a voice through self-expression and an opportunity for the public to view how young people visualize their rights and those of other children.”

Regardless of their gender, ethnicity, religion, language, ability, nationality and family background, every child has the right to be happy, healthy, educated, protected and loved. These rights are protected by the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC), which Malaysia ratified in 1995.
